Fly Reel Compatibility
I just purchased a Sage DS2 8wt and am now looking for a reel. I am leaning towards the Lamson Velocity 3.5
Now after surfing the board I seem to be very interested in looking into a Spey rod. :confused:
My question is if I bought the Velocity 3.5 would it work on a Spey rod with the same wt? Or is there a different system for matching Spey rods to reels.
The operative element is the Spey line.
They often demand much more capacity, since the rods can handle very long heads, double tapers, etc.
As a general rule for 8wt Spey fishing, the 3.5 can probably handle shooting head style Spey lines with a thin running line but to fit most common Spey lines you would need to consider a larger spool thus a bigger reel to go with it.
